Collingwood OPP have confirmed the identity of the cyclist who died after crashing on Scenic Caves Road last week. 

Jeffery Miller, 33, of Richmond Hill was cycling down the hill on Scenic Caves Road on Aug. 11 when he lost control of his bicycle and crashed. 

Local police confirmed the crash occurred near one of the S-bends in the road and in the general area of the entrance to Scenic Caves. 

The Blue Mountains Fire Department notified local OPP at about 6 p.m. on Aug. 11 that fire crews were on the scene of a fatal collision involving a lone cyclist on Scenic Caves Road in The Blue Mountains. Police closed the road for several house for the investigation. 

Within the last ten years, one other cyclist has crashed on the road and though the crash was not immediately fatal, the cyclist suffered life-altering injuries including paralysis and has since died. 

The investigation into Miller's death and crash is still ongoing.
